THE GIFTS OF IMPERFECTION by Brene Brown
This month I am excited to be sharing with you my second book recommendation by Brene Brown.
The Gifts of Imperfection – Let Go of Who You Think You’re Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are. Your Guide to a Wholehearted Life is a No.1 New York Times Best Seller and for very good reason!
Brene Brown is a Shame researcher. She has dedicated her career to researching and understanding shame – the feeling and thoughts that say to us, ‘I don’t deserve’, ‘I am not good enough’, ‘I am broken and I’ll never be fixed’. The Gifts of Imperfection is a beautiful woven explanation of what shame is, why we have it, and how we can reduce our quota of shame and choose instead to lead and live a wholehearted life. A life were we truly believe and know that we are worthy, deserving and capable of accepting love.
What I love about Brene Brown, and this book, is that this isn’t a self help book. It’s not a book full of lovely sentiment and platitudes that get you no where, because you are still who you are. This book explains who you are and why, and exactly what you can do, if you want to change those things. There are no false promises, or glossy stories, everything is based in scientific fact that pulls from Brene’s own research findings, as well as a number of other well documented resources and authors (many of whom I’m pleased to say are already in included in my previous book of the month recommendations!).
It is eloquently written, easy to read and understand and eye opening. A real must read for anyone who sometimes thinks ‘I am not enough’, or, ‘I’m only deserving if and when everything is perfect’. That’s no way to live, and I urge you to buy this book to find out why, and what it would take to change.
